ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The newly-opened Jefferson Street interchange on the Liberty Expressway in Albany has the official seal of approval from the Georgia Department of Transportation.
State inspectors joined the construction crews for a final inspection before signing off on the project. Besides a few minor corrections, the project received a top rating.
"Oxford and their subs did a marvelous job on this project. As you can see, it is a tremendous improvement prior to us coming out here. The job turned out very well," said D.O.T. District Engineer Scott Chambers.
The $13 million project took two and a half years to complete and includes new expressway entrance and exit ramps and an overhauled intersection at Jefferson Street and Philema Road.
